CAR Magazine pits the F10 M5 (standard, non-competition) against the Audi RS6 Avant.
On paper, the RS6 is a rocket. But consider this: the true test of a great driver
Contender: BMW 5 Series
By: Jonny Lieberman
We Like: Abusive amounts of power result in skull-cracking acceleration.
We Don’t Like: Hefty, complex, and surprisingly numb.
We were quite excited to get our hands on the updated 528i and the new 535d. We’d had a not-very-loved long-term 528i, and hoped the refresh would fix some of what we didn’t like (i.e., stop/start). And we’re cuckoo for diesels. Sad to say, BMW couldn’t get us either car in time for Car of the Year. It did, however, happen to have the new M5 Competition lying around. For $7300 over the $95,125 base price, you get an additional 15 hp; a new, sportier-sounding exhaust system; 10mm-lower ride height from a revised suspension; and 20-inch lightweight alloy wheels.

Epic European Delivery report journal by BIMMERPOST member B-1 Pilot:
Just four days ago, we returned from an Epic European Delivery trip of my 2014 M5. In 10 days of travelling we visited 8 countries, drove 1800 miles, hit 162MPH, drove three laps around the Nürburgring, took 1200 pictures, shot 15 hours of video, and consumed copious amounts of good German beer and wine.
For my trip, I blended previous experiences, new knowledge learned here, and about 6 months of research to come up with our itinerary. I happily pay if forward and share the experience with you here, so that you might see something that piques your interest for a future European Delivery.
This week on Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the BMW M5… again! This time around it has something called the Competition Package, which adds a host of small adjustments and improvements in an effort to improve the car’s performance and the satisfaction it gives to its driver. Is more power and a recalibration of the suspension and steering enough to make this incredible sedan behave? We find out on the test track at Hyundai’s Proving Grounds.
The newest catalog of M Performance Parts for the M5 and M6 has officially been announced and released.
In-depth expertise, a keen awareness of detail and meticulous fine-tuning work make all the difference on the racetrack – and now enable BMW factory driver Martin Tomczyk to experience that special racing feel on the road as well. At the German Touring Car Masters (DTM), Tomczyk drives the BMW M Performance Accessories M3 DTM, but is now out and about off the racetrack in a BMW M6 Gran Coupe. Also, as far as his new company car is concerned, the 2011 DTM champion from Rosenheim has left nothing to chance and with the precision of a professional racing driver has adapted the high-performance sports car developed by … CONTINUED
